After adapting an intense drama series like 24 for the Indian audience, it appears that Anil Kapoor is now ready to take on a lighter, fluffier show, like Modern Family.
Well, at least that’s what his tweet indicates.
He tweeted pictures of his daughter, Rhea Kapoor, on the set of the American hit show, as well as a photograph of an associate who posed with Jesse Tyler Ferguson, who plays the role of a homosexual lawyer named Mitch.
Although the rumours began to circulate in December last year, it seemed Kapoor still had a long way to go before anything could materialise.
Bollywood may be a progressive fraternity, but television material is still more conservative. Is India really ready for a Modern Family TV show?
Talking to Times of India back then, Kapoor reasoned: “I think India is ready for a Modern Family. The middle-class is growing rapidly and we have a new government that makes the future look bright.”
Told from the perspective of an unseen documentary filmmaker, the series offers an honest, often-hilarious perspective of family life. Modern Familychronicles the unusual kinship of the extended Pritchett clan, a brood that includes patriarch Jay; his younger Latina wife, Gloria, and her son; Jay’s daughter, Claire, and her family; and Jay’s son, Mitchell, who lives with his partner, Cameron.
We’re very curious about the casting. Who’s going to be playing Gloria? Or Phil? Guess we’ll just have to wait to find out.
